SMR Includes Private Wireless!

EWA plans to remind the FCC that the category of Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) includes Part 90 users and does not exclusively refer to cellular services. The FCC’s persistent, limited view of SMR can have consequences for Part 90 licensees, often leading to additional regulatory burdens. EWA plans to file comments in a proceeding that proposes to collect all of the rules pertaining to cellular service into one section – Section 27. In its comments, EWA will advocate for leaving the rules pertaining to SMR in its current location because SMR is used by private wireless as well as cellular providers.
